STELAR Webinar: Measuring Student Interest and Motivation in Informal Settings

STELAR Webinar: Measuring Student Interest and Motivation in Informal Settings

Thursday, October 29, 2015
Description

One of the keys to having youth pursue STEM careers is developing their personal interest in science and technology.  Often, hands-on activities in out-of-school contexts provide diverse youth with low-pressure, non-academic environments in which they can explore their interests more freely than they may be able to in a school setting.  However, unlike tests which can measure student knowledge in STEM domains,  measuring student interest and motivation requires different considerations.

In this webinar, hear from current NSF projects about the strategies, tools and technologies they use to measure youth interest and motivation in STEM in such settings.  In addition, projects' findings, challenges, and lessons learned regarding measuring interest in STEM will be discussed.
